THE PERFECT DAY: 40 YEARS OF SURFER MAGAZINE (2001)

For anyone who has followed SURFER Magazine faithfully over the past four decades, The Perfect Day: 40 Years of SURFER Magazine will take you back to an era. For me it was the legendary tube duels between Mark Richards and Shaun Thomson at Off-the-Wall, chronicled in Free Ride. For others it might be the clash between Mickey Dora and Johnny Fain at the annual Malibu Club Contest in 1965. This book "rides the wave of surfing history, decade by decade, from the very first issue, distributed from the back of a Volkswagen van in 1960, to the most cutting edge coverage of today." Sure to satisfy, this pictorial is packed with classic photos from the sixties, seventies, eighties and nineties, including Rick Griffin artwork and Mickey Dora's "Last Interview." Copyright 2001 by Emap USA. Edited by SURFER Magazine Editor Sam George. 167 pages. Paperbound (heavy glossy stock). Measures approximately 10 inches by 12 inches. Near-mint condition. Packaged in an archival-quality clear plastic sleeve with an acid-free mat backing board. We just acquired a hardbound copy of this title, also in near-mint condition! Click Here for a closer look.
